That is what happens when you have people who have no idea of what they are selling writing descriptions of highly technical items like a landing net pole :p

I have heard several left handed anglers wish for a left handed reel, not just the positioning of the handle, but the rotor going the WRONG WAY like old MITCHELL reels.

The description is even better. Very informative. I don't think the person who wrote this garbage even knows what it is. I like the fact that it is lined!

Copied and pasted from the Go Outdoors website:

Dinsmores 3 Part EXT Long FibreGlass Powerlite Handle:

Created in fibreglass, this telescopic style of handle is ideal for any fisher looking for a durable, longlasting yet lightweight purchase.

320cm in total height.

In a 3 part style, this is great for easy transportation and storage.

I have the 2 part one and have to say, it's got some strength in it. Had it a few years too.

Maybe, but you would think someone would at least read it before publishing it, or is that too much to expect?

That reminds me of the manual for my first Japanese motorbike. That must have been a literal translation, I could not understand any of it' even though it was supposed to be in English.

Nothing surprises me today. You only have to read online news and sports articles from BBC & Sky to realise that no one reads what they have written before publishing.

That said I have just finished proof reading a 40 page charity magazine. Hopefully I have caught all the errors.
